The hobby of aeromodelling has grown with the development of the airplane itself to the fascinating and popular pastime that it is today. Flying models out of doors is as widespread as ever, but non-flying scale display models have been found to be better suited to the confines of the home, especially when storage becomes a problem. Shop-bought plastic kits, which enable anyone capable of assembling the parts to produce a realistic model, sell in their thousands. The most expert modellers, however, often regard kit models as the raw material for an intricate and beautiful job of conversion which will result in a unique model. And because a model of this sort does not look like a model, it was decided to make this book a history of the airplane, and to illustrate it with the best models available.
